Moments ago I received a shocking message from Tommy Robinson’s family.
Tommy’s legal appeal, scheduled for next week in London’s Royal Courts of Justice, has been cancelled.
The excuse? The government’s lawyers say they’re not ready.
That’s a damnable lie, of course.
Tommy has been languishing in prison since May 25th. The Crown Prosecution Service — what could be called the UK’s largest law firm — has had a month and a half to prepare. They have every legal expert at their disposal. They have unlimited resources.
But they simply want Tommy to rot in jail longer.
Every day for Tommy in prison is like a week — because he’s in solitary confinement, for his own safety from Muslim prison gangs who would kill him if they could.
- Tommy is ready for his appeal.
- Tommy’s lawyers are ready — and his new team have only been working on the appeal for two weeks.
- The judge his ready — Lord Justice Brian Leveson, the most senior criminal judge in the UK.
But someone — somewhere — in the government wants Tommy to stay in jail just a little bit longer.
This is a “stitch-up”, as Tommy would say.
So much for the land of the Magna Carta. So much for the rule of law.
I will continue to send you news as I receive it from Tommy’s family or his lawyers.

P.P.S. One last thought. The state says they need more time to prepare for this legal appeal. Funny: they didn’t.
